Default Why are my newsgroups downloading so slow?

sponsored links

See topic. I am on a 768/128 cable modem that has been downloading around 190KB/s from HTTP sites, I have set up my newgroups and I am only getting 30KB/s (when I was downloading the lists from the groups I was getting around 120KB/s). I am on Charter Pipeline (cable) and using GrabIt. Please help me.
Any suggestions will help.
Please keep in mind that I am downloading 40KB/s worth in Direct Connect while doing this (and still getting the 120KB/s for lists)!

After the problems over the last week-end... the attach from over seas... the web in general has been slow. My newsgroups were completely useless but things are begining to turn around now. Just hang in there and get ahold of your ISP if you have to. And also some services are just plain slower than others at any given time. (the attach slowed everything)

i use usenetserver and also my own ip Roadrunner to get my stuff on the newsgroups as someone above posted with recent stuff from overseas its been crap plus all the hacking in korea didnt help sometimes i connect and im getting 300ksec now sometimes its 15ksec
if i connect at 15k i leave it off for like 5 mins and start it again and its then usually 230k then slowly goes up to 300k i use to different programs Grabit and Agent Forte

so just hang in and u will be back to 300k in no time at all
my isp Roadrunner is getting 300k right now and my usenetserver 30k
